Honolulu Tune Up

Its a common story. We might even call it the Honolulu story. You have a modern late model car with fuel injection and computer controlled automatic, but why does it run rough ?!?! Well maybe its because its 6 years old? Myth. New cars with low mileage seem to run rough this year. E10 imho is the cause. NOT the ONLY cause however. Modern Automatic transmissions run hotter than ever and need to be serviced more frequently than "old muscle cars". FLUSH YOUR TRANS! Keep your injectors clean with LUCAS Fuel Treatment and install spark plugs one heat range colder. After running a tankfull of fuel treatment install a new fuel filter. If you have a K&N airfilter shoot some brake clean on your MAF wire. I do this to all my cars and they run like new. Modern FI cars work best when they idle cherry. Everything is based on that ...if it idles cherry WOT and everything in between will be cherry.
Dont be so quick to blame the computer or the Age of the car or the mileage. Modern cars can run to 200k +.
